**an would have a field day with this one. Thank you 11W for keeping this as respectful and comfortable environment as possible.

It's sad that this culture has grown at such a rare, not just within athletic departments, but within stupid populations at large. These young men fail to learn true respect for women and themselves. I hope that we can figure this out and turn this trend around.

Touché. I knew Baylor had anothe ga*e vs. UT next week, so I had assu*ed that the entire conference played that week. Turns out, it's the exact opposite - Baylor-UT is the only Big 12 ga*e next week.

Only chance for 2 B1G tea*s is a 3 loss SEC cha*p and a 2 loss Big 12 Cha*p. Even then, conference cha*ps still may get the nod over an OSU tea* with only one good win.

Comment 25 Nov 2015

Even their fight song is pompous and self-adulating. Ours is passionate and aspirational. They're the best. Ohio State doesn't have to be the best.

The best don't proclaim it themselves, because others are sure to do it for them.

Baylor travels to Fort Worth

The current TCU tea* is a shell of its for*er self, and Baylor's starting a 3rd string QB, so it could be interesting.. The issue I find intriguing is why no one has an issue with Alaba*a at #2. It could be argued that OU, Iowa, *SU, Stanford, and TTUN all have better resumes, especially the Spartans. It's a joke that Satan will get into the CFP every single year, even with a loss, no *atter what. That conference has proven itself to have been very overrated, and all of Alaba*a's "signature" wins are continually devalued, which includes future SEC Championship Game opponent Florida. The Gators are, without a doubt, the biggest fraud out there.

I didn't *iss the point. It's a lovely theory, but just doesn't work. I understand what you're trying to say, but basketball recruiting isn't the sa*e as football. If the 5 best players in Ohio one year play C and PG, but the Bucks have two schollies, need two wing*en and there's a 4 star and 5 star recruit fro* out of state interested, they've got to offer the out of state players.

Consider this - if Urban offers an in-state 3 star recruit that doesn't pan out, that kid is only about 4% of an entire recruiting class. If Thad does the sa*e thing, the kid is roughly 25-33% of a class, and 7% of the overall tea*. It see*s silly, but it does *ake a difference. Thad has to be *ore judicious with his scholarships, so we can't expect hi* to just hand the* out to all of the top 15 players in Ohio every single year.

Anyway, agree to disagree. GO Bucks! Beat *ichigan!

If the unthinkable happens, and the Bucks lose on Saturday, we all need to switch gears and root for Dino to win out, right? The closer this ga*e gets, the *ore I worry about how the Buckeyes *atchup with  TTUN. If OSU couldn't exploit a weak *SU secondary, what *akes us think that they can take advantage of an even better one? I a* holding out hope that Brax has a little *ore *agic left in the tank and can pull off so*e highlight reel plays, and a couple of scores on the way to victory.

If he waits another year (*aybe even just a few weeks) Texas and FSU *ay be open. Houston to S. Carolina just feels lateral rather than vertical. That's a crappy progra* with a crappy history. I think he can, and hope he does, get so*ething better.

Comment 24 Nov 2015

Probably looking through Scarlet colored glasses, but I could see Cardale sitting for 2-3 years, and then beco*ing an above average NFL QB. Hell, he's better than anyone on the Browns' depth chart right now.

I kinda like the idea of Cardale watching Brees for the next couple of seasons and playing in a do*e 8 ga*es per year.

Comment 24 Nov 2015

We'll get the "brand recognition" bump that we need to get into a big bowl regardless of how it plays out in the end.

If they can beat *ichigan. Otherwise, say hello to the Citrus Bowl.
